A 12-year-old zebra named Lima, was exercising outside a downtown arena in preparation for an evening show when he got scared, he broke away from his trainers and bumped up against a fence, then wriggled through an opening.
Everybody was after the zebra.
My brother told me there are picture and video of the Zebra loose In Atlanta. Does anyone know where can I find the pics and the video of the zebra escape?
The zebra was originally spotted by CNN employees in the CNN Center parking deck. The loose zebra belongs to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus,
The circus was performing at Philips Arena, where the zebra is believed to have escaped.
The animal's distinctive black-and-white stripes make it alarmingly easy to spot in an urban setting, but the stripes actually serve as camouflage in its native habitat, the grasslands of Africa.
Atlanta police followed the zebra on their motorcycles until they could safely capture it.
The commotion caused traffic to back up for several miles along the highway.
